Terminating the Salaah with one Salaam

Q: Can you tell me please in gulf countries I see mostly the Imams finish salaah only with one salam. Is this ok or not?


A: This conforms to the Maaliki Mazhab. Perhaps they follow the Maaliki Mazhab. However according to the other Mazaaib (Hanafi, Shafi’ee and Hambali Mazhab), two salaams will be made. If you are performing Salaah behind them, then you should also make two salaams.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
